It has been a while since I got a breast cancer scam phone call, but I got one tonight. It came in from Hershey, PA and the number is 717-298-5071.
A woman asked for me by name. It was partially a live person and partially a robo-call. They claimed to be calling on behalf of a breast cancer charity that helped cancer patients get meds. They did not name the charity.
But when I asked “Who is this? What charity is this? How did you get my name?” the call magically disconnected.
Can you say scam?
When I tried to call back all I got was busy. I have been trying to look up the number and on the Internet this is what they say:
Got a call from this number, when my son asked who was calling,they hung up. Second time they called. Reverse-searched it and someone said it was soliciting donations for Breast Cancer, but not official.
They called this evening saying they were collecting for breast cancer to help women who can’t afford there medication told them we don’t donate over the phone don’t call
Ok, so we know what this is.
Delete, block, repeat.
Legitimate breast cancer charities do NO do NOT do NOT employ telemarketers and robo calls.
